After winter has come and gone, it is time for spring cleaning. New mulch does several things for your landscape beds. Besides making your beds look fresh and clean, mulch also provides a layer of weed protection, along with a slow release fertilizer for year-long benefits. As the mulch decomposes, it attracts more insects and worms to create a wonderful environment for plants to thrive. And with so many colors to choose from, your landscaping can look like new again.
